Ed Ruscha: Understanding His Words

Posted: August 01, 2014 10:29 Last Updated: | Kenny Ackerman

Pop Art was one of the defining modern movements of the 1950s and 1960s. The driving force is that anything can be art. There is no right and wrong, no high and low culture. In fact, modern culture and advertisements were embraced. Some of the most recognizable features of Pop Art is the isolation of common objects and images. Warhol’s paintings of soup cans and Lichtenstein lifting comic panels out of context came to define this movement. In the late 50s, Artist Ed Ruscha took another approach.  He examined words. Ruscha once commented that he had appreciation for misspellings ...

Aggressive Estimates Result in Strong Sales During American Art Week

Posted: May 30, 2014 08:38 Last Updated: | Louis M. Salerno, Owner

Silencing the skeptics, the nineteenth- and early twentieth-century American art market demonstrated its strength across multiple genres. Glowing press releases from both Sotheby’s and Christie’s described exuberant bidding and impressive results. The 67 lots sold at Sotheby’s resulted in a sell-through rate of 80.7%, while Christie’s achieved a 69% sell-through rate, selling 115 of the 167 lots offered. Combined, the two major houses sold a total of 182 lots for nearly $110,000,000. I will describe some my battles before delving deeper into the results. My job becomes more difficult...


Image identified as Phillis Wheatley

Phillis Wheatley or Dido Elizabeth Belle?

Posted: May 29, 2014 12:51 Last Updated: | M. Richardson

Now that we have the fascinating story of Dido Belle, let’s take another look at the supposed portrait of the American slave and literary prodigy, Phillis Wheatley, in evening dress (Image 1). Published in a French review in the 1830s, long after Wheatley’s death, there is virtually no documentation to establish the subject’s identity. The historical context suggests it is far more likely a depiction of Dido Belle. (Image 2) Detail from double portrait of Elizabeth Murray and her cousin, Dido Elizabeth Belle by an unknown artist (formerly att. Johann Zoffany). Scotland (177...

Gun Deck Cutaways -A Decorative and Definitive Art Form

Posted: April 30, 2014 11:41 Last Updated: | Rex Stewart

It is not surprising that this subject matter has not been recognized in the arts. However, it is a subject that warrants appreciation for its unique form of symmetry and balance when being viewed as a concept. Fine art is anything that is beyond the ordinary; a work which holds unprecedented merit at its finest level -regardless of medium. Money, nor an expert's opinion, cannot control it. What's factual is fine art is defined as "a form"..."a sculpture"...and/or "decorative piece". I can be further said by notables as "a knowledge made efficient by skill" (Genung) or "the expression o...

Choose With Your Heart

Posted: April 18, 2014 09:09 Last Updated: | Louis M. Salerno, Owner

What would happen if art was purchased for the right reasons; if we simply chose with our hearts? What if we sought the paintings that allow our most cherished places and memories to live again, so that we could share them with our families? All of us long for art that is a part of who we are. Remember it?—that which is beautiful and in accord with the natural world. Timeless art is not within the realm of trend and fashion; we should be suspicious of art that appeals to the fleeting and doubtful taste of the public. Great and lasting art should transcend time. The present is the least rel...
